The Hype is Hugh – iPhone 3G

So many of you might not be interested in the iPhone at all, we did make a lot of new yesterday from the WWDC 2008 in San Francisco, those of you that don’t know what it is it’s a developers convention for the development of Apple Inc. Mostly about the tech future in the company, OSX and of course the iPhone.
 
Well a couple of months ago there turned up some pictures online, one of them was this one, showing up the backside of the new iPhone 3G however people turned it down as a thing you could buy in China.
So the Rumors went on and just a couple of days after the first image (the one above) we got another one all over the internet; This time the backside of the iPhone was facing up and you could see it laying on a Macbook Pro, but once again people turned it down as a FAKE photo. Well now that we have the key in our hand we know they where true photos and not fake ones and we also learned how hard it is to get your sources right.
So what can we say about the new iPhone? We can start of buy Whining over the stuff it did not get, (however i don’t care about this at all) The iPhone did not get;

  • Better Camera
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Front faced camera for video calls
  • Cut & Copy Paste
  • Bigger storage
  • Picture messaging
  • Video Recording

  • So this pictures show of the new iPhone and the similarity to the Photos that have been out and around the web are well identical. So now you know the downsides, the only thing i think we can’t fix because its a hardware issue is the Storage space. The other things on their hand is software stuff, so i think that we will see this things in form form 3rd parties.
    The things that are new with the iPhone 3G;

  • 3G
  • GPS
  • Slimmer design
  • Microsoft Exchange support
  • Push; email, contact, calendar via: MobileMe
  • Possibility to ad-hoc, close system
  • 3rd part development applications
  • App Store
  • Affordable prices, from $199 (or €130)
  • The new iPhone 2.0 OSX with tons of new features
  • So form my standpoint this is THE phone on the market, the things i mentioned before about the Copy & Past, no MMS, those are software issues, witch any good programmer out there can fix, and well lets face it how much storage does your mobile phone have?! mine has 2GB… So 16GB do it for me. The price is just unbelievable from a high $399 to just 199$ i wanna see what Nokia will do with their N96 now, its bigger, clumsier, more expensive, not the same storage space, no touch screen, no OSX.
     
    The other strong things with the new iPhone 3G is the possibiltie you have to play games, like the Super Monkey Ball; You can also watch this video from YouTube where Sega demonstrated the game in realtime.

    So the verdict with the new Apple iPhone 3G… Yes i crave it and yes I’m gonna get it, and yes its the best phone ever made by man.
     
    To close this chapter we want to end with a small Poll, so please answer the following question;

    MacFusion – Rumor


    So here we are at THE DAY when apple are having their biggest press release in a long time, right now the stock has fallen $ 1,79… however the day is far from over, in a little over just 2 hours the big event will take place, the WWDC 2008.
     
    This is the rumor though that there will be a MacFusion, a smaller version of the MacMini, directed towards the developer section, with abilities such as running Vista, or Linux via boot-camp.
    What do you think? Is this the next generation MacMini/AppleTV take 3
